    The UAV body is in perfect condition without a scratch and I would never take a sawzall to it. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    By the way, I got the u-jointed steering shaft from you last night, looks good.

    Do you have any install pics/writeup on those sliders? I'd like to know what all was cut out and what points of the sliders got welded on. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Oh, and just a thought...maybe those bars are getting beat up, but it's either those or your doors and/or side of the body. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Most likely would have got through clean if they weren't there is more like it. The box tube by itself is plenty of protection there. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
